Woodbridge Loneliness Counseling

Loneliness Counseling in Woodbridge, VA

Many people feel lonely and disconnected from the people in their lives. In fact, these can be very normal feelings, of which you might not have to be too worried about. However, when loneliness or social isolation persists for months at a time, or when it starts to affect your daily life, then it may be time to get help. Thriveworks Woodbridge, VA has counselors who specialize in loneliness counseling—call our office today to schedule a loneliness counseling appointment! In the meantime, consider:

1. Is there anyone you can talk to?

Some people who are lonely have literally no one to talk to. If you’re in that situation, then move on to the next tip. For the rest of you, understand that is not uncommon for people to feel lonely even when they’re surrounded by others. If you’re in this spot, consider talking to a trusted person who will let you open up about how you’re feeling.

2. Have you ever meditated?

You may dismiss meditating offhand but it can be helpful for some. The truth is that when we get stuck in a loneliness loop, we tend to think only of ourselves. Meditating can help clear the mind, help you focus on other things going on around you, and make it easier for you to identify what’s really causing you to be lonely.

One of the problems people who suffer from loneliness deal with is a hyper-focus on how lonely they are. They begin to feel sad and alone and from them on, all they think about is how alone they feel. Meditating can help you identify some of the thoughts that are keeping you lonely and can help you release them.

3. Do you have a pet?

Many studies have shown that virtually any pet can help protect against depression and loneliness. If you don’t currently have a pet, consider spending time in a dog park, volunteering at a local shelter, or even taking a part-time job at a doggy day care center.

Althilia Moore

I have been seeing my therapist for several months now. She is awesome! Each time I see her she is ready to help me through what ever issue I have that week. She actually listens to what I have to say and has responses ready along with coping skills on how to make it though each situation. We have recently started EMDR therapy and I am hopeful this will help me face my demons of my past. I give Thriveworks and Althilia Moore 5 Stars!!
